Sophisticated Representation For Complex Marital Estates
In a typical divorce, property division might involve the house, the 401(k) and a few credit cards. For high net worth households, the math is much trickier, and there are additional legal considerations.
The Law Firm of Mysti Murphy provides experienced and strategic representation for high-asset divorce. We represent high earners or their spouses in San Antonio and throughout Bexar County. In or out of court, our legal team will fiercely protect your financial interests while guiding you to a workable divorce settlement.
Unique Considerations In High-Asset Divorce
Texas is a community property state, which means all wealth (and debt) acquired during the marriage must be split evenly. This raises many questions and potential conflicts. Which assets are part of the marital estate? What are they worth? How do you divide them?
Mysti Murphy has practiced in family law for over 20 years, including many complex divorces cases. Her clientele has included doctors and surgeons, business owners, corporate executives, professionals and other high net worth individuals or the spouses of high earners. She is familiar with complex asset division and complicating factors, such as:
- Valuation of a business or professional practice
- Separate property, commingled assets and asset tracing
- Hidden or transferred assets
- Market value of the home and other real estate
- Substantial retirement portfolios
- Stocks and deferred compensation
- Gun collections, artwork, jewelry and other valuables
- Loans, charge cards and debts
- Alimony (if applicable)
- Prenuptial agreements (if applicable)
Finding Solutions For A Fair Split
We work with appraisers, business valuation specialists, qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) experts, and other professionals to gauge the value of each asset and the total value of the estate. We work with our clients and opposing counsel to determine priorities (such as the house or the business) and address any disputes over the valuation or characterization of assets.
Although the stakes are high, a diverse asset base increases the possible permutations. Attorney Mysti Murphy is a smart and tough negotiator who can suggest beneficial trade-offs and creative compromises to balance it all out. If your case is not amenable to mediation or collaborative law, you have the advantage of a proven trial lawyer who can vigorously protect your interests in court.
